A Nation Undivided

You've made my pillow a foam soaked with tears
And now, am wearing a makeup of sadness.
But for every tear that drops...
I remember the battles you fought
For every tear that drops...
I remember the selfless service
For every tear that drops...
All for fairness to all humanity
For every tear that drops...
All for brotherhood love
Of all the soldiers fallen in battle
Of all the massacre of little children
Of all the blood of innocent lives shed
Of all the justice and equity you fought for
I hope the little candle light in my heart
Keeps me believing that somehow,someday
Your dreams of a great Nigeria would come true
And we'ld all be united in one heart.

HAPPY DEMOCRACY DAY to all Nigerians in diaspora!
(We celebrate all our leaders that fought for Nigeria's peace and unity).

In Search Of Me

"Nothing is found except it is hidden.
Nothing is hidden except it is a treasure."

In me is a talent waiting to be discovered;
The very gift that makes me priceless.

In me is a voice waiting to be heard,
Food for those whose mind hunger for knowledge.

My little light is waiting to shine bright
Upon a world clouded with darkness and confusion.

I am on a journey in search of me
On a quest to know the essence for my being.

The search will never end until there's no more hidden place.
The digging continues until the depth is within reach.

With these eyes I shall look beyond the obvious.
And with my ears listen beyond what is spoken.

Though the road is unknown yet I will venture
Better to die searching than to retreat and live a lie.

My instinct and inner light shall guide me
My faith and hope shall sustain me

Until the hidden me is revealed for the world to see
I will never give up on this search for the priceless me.

MAY - Miracles Awaits You

Awake, dear dreamer.
A new day has dawn
For you may make real
All that your heart ever dreamed.

Awake, you visionary.
The hour of manifestation is here,
For those things which are yet unseen
To become tangible before all eyes.

Awake, you doubters and skeptics.
Come out of your blindness into the light
To behold the possibilities that awaits you
And those who truly believes.

Awake, you dreamers,
Hurry up the home of the visionaries
And call together the skeptics and doubters
That you all may go to the place where Miracles Awaits You!

Welcome to the month of MAY.
